    I worked at Mavericks Charter High School full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you have no experience or no teaching agree they will hire you.

    Cons

    Mismanaged and only interested in turning a profit not helping kids. Students copy and cheat and management turns their heads and ignores it for the sake of credits. Students are not dropped for not showing up to keep attendance numbers up. Students allowed to take short cuts and complete classes with simple packets in lieu of class online as per charter.

    Advice to Management

    Less concern with turning a profit and any effort at all to actually help and educate students.

    I have been working at Mavericks Charter High School for more than 3 years

    Pros

    you can help kids that really need.

    Cons

    Low wages, no healthcare, no retirement. The school building is not a good setup for a classroom.If the kids fail testing, teachers get a bad grade. They place the school grade as part of the iobservation, giving teachers a bad iobservation.

    Advice to Management

    Better pay your teachers. Improve working conditions: retirement and healthcare. The building is deteriorating. We need new facilities.

    I worked at Mavericks Charter High School full-time

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with disadvantaged youth, if even for a few weeks. The kids need help - lots of help, and not the kind of help this school provides. Unfortunately, cheating is implicitly encouraged, and academic dishonesty is rampant, because they need kids to close classes quickly. There is no recourse for the school to uphold any kind of standard of excellence.

    Cons

    They don't have their stuff together - and for good reason. They hired me for one reason, and one reason only: so they could get the charter renewed, and they needed more teachers to do that. Once it was renewed, I was let go of. Simple as that.

    Advice to Management

    Education is big business. Don't let teacher salaries fool you - there is a LOT of money to be made in education. That doesn't mean educating the students, unfortunately. The people of Mavericks don't value education, as is apparent they don't value providing an actual education for the students they serve. Many of the teachers don't understand why they teach.
